Pentagon halts production of vaunted F-35 after discovering Chinese alloy is a critical component

(Natural News) The Pentagon has halted production of the world’s most expensive — and some say advanced — fighter jet after technicians and engineers found that a component used it the plane contained a Chinese alloy, in violation of federal law.

The Defense Department said it is halting further deliveries of the Lightning II to customers including the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy after finding the Chinese-sourced rare-earth alloy in magnets for pumps used on the fighter.

Defense Department spokesman Russell Goemaere told Bloomberg News in an email that the F-35 program office “temporarily paused the acceptance of new F-35 aircraft to ensure the F-35 program’s compliance” with DoD rules sourcing “specialty metals.”

Goemaere did say, however, that the Chinese alloy is not going to disrupt current operations involving F-35s currently forward deployed with the U.S. military and global partners because “the magnet does not transmit information or harm the integrity of the aircraft and there are no performance, quality, safety or security risks associated with this issue.”

He went on to say that the DoD F-35 program office “found an alternative source for the alloy that will be used in future turbomachines.

“We are working with our partners and DoD to ensure contractual compliance within the supply chain … and are working with the DoD to resolve the issue as quickly as possible to resume deliveries,” Lockheed Martin, the aircraft maker, told Bloomberg.

Zero Hedge notes further:

Chinese alloy found in F-35s is no surprise, considering the country controls the global rare-earth metals market. 

A Congressional Research Service report found that F-35s use about 920 pounds of rare earths per plane, mainly for electronic warfare sensors, electrical power systems, and magnets.  

The US relies heavily on Asian countries for 80% of its rare-earths needs. There have been moves by the Biden administration to increase domestic supply chains as a priority to mitigate if China were to impose an export ban on US defense companies. 

Rare earths are also central in manufacturing night vision goggles, precision-guided missiles, and drones. On the civilian side, metals are critical for electric vehicles and smartphones. 

Bloomberg News noted that the Defense Contract Management Agency and the F-35’s program office referenced a U.S. law as well as a Pentagon acquisition policy regulation that forbid the use of certain specialty materials from “covered countries” that are listed in the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation series. Besides China, those countries include Russia, North Korea, and Iran. It’s not clear when the contract agency discovered the violation but the office reported it on Aug. 19.

“The turbomachine integrates the aircraft’s auxiliary power unit and an air cycle machine into a single piece of equipment that provides electrical power for ground maintenance, starting off the main engine and emergency power,” the outlet reported.

Adam Kress, a spokesman for Honeywell, noted in a statement to Bloomberg News that the company “remains committed to supplying high-quality products that meet or exceed all customer contract requirements” and is “working closely with DoD and Lockheed Martin to ensure that we continue to achieve those commitments on products Honeywell supplies for use on the F-35.”

In February, the Department of Energy announced an investment plan to bolster American production of rare earth minerals in an effort to move away from Chinese sources.

“Applying next-generation technology to convert legacy fossil fuel waste into a domestic source of critical minerals needed to strengthen our supply chains is a win-win — delivering a healthier environment and driving us forward to our clean energy goals,” said Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm. “With the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law’s investment in the build out of this first-of-its kind critical minerals refinery, we are moving ideas from the lab to the commercial stage and demonstrating how America can compete for the global supply chain to meet the growing demand for clean energy technology.”

There is no time to waste on this.

91% of Biden voters took the jab, proving that stupid in politics means stupid in health

Image: 91% of Biden voters took the jab, proving that stupid in politics means stupid in health

(Natural News) The Economist and YouGov conducted a poll recently which found that the vast majority of people in the United States who voted for Joe Biden in the 2020 election are “fully vaccinated” for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).

Some 91 percent of Biden voters, the results show, rolled up a sleeve and said yes to the experimental poison from Operation Warp Speed, believing it to be the cure for Chinese Germs.

Only three in 10 people who participated in the survey indicated that they have not received any injections for the Fauci Flu, illustrating that most Americans regardless of political persuasion took the clot shots, either because they wanted to or because they were “forced” to in order to keep working or going to school.

A majority of respondents, 71 percent, said they received “at least one shot of ANY manufacturer’s COVID-19 vaccine,” while about three in 10 said they did not. (Related: Remember when Biden pushed for vaccinators to go door-to-door in pursuit of the unvaccinated?)

“The figure is highest among independents, 39 percent of whom said they have not received any coronavirus vaccine,” reported Breitbart News. “Another 35 percent of Republicans indicated that they have not received a vaccine either, and 14 percent of Democrats said the same.”

34% of Trump voters said they refused the jab

Thirty-four percent of people who voted for Donald Trump, meanwhile, indicated that they just said no to any and all shots, regardless of the consequences of their decision.

Brighteon.TV

Conducted from August 28-30, 2022, the survey included 1,500 adult citizens across the U.S.

Keep in mind that Biden was caught lying to America and his voters last July when at a town hall gathering where he falsely claimed that the jabs stop infection, which he now admits is not the case.

“But again, one last thing,” Biden mumbled and rambled. “I – we don’t talk enough to you about this, I don’t think. One last thing that’s really important is: we’re not in a position where we think that any virus – including the Delta virus, which is much more transmissible and more deadly in terms of non – unvaccinated people – the vi – the various shots that people are getting now cover that. They’re – you’re okay. You’re not going to – you’re not going to get covid if you have these vaccinations.”

Phew. That was a lot of word salad to try to dig through. In essence, Biden spread misinformation at his event about the shots doing something beneficial when the reality is that they do absolutely nothing to help save lives.

To the contrary, Tony Fauci’s clot shots, which were pushed by both Donald Trump and Joe Biden, cause antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE), non-blood clots, and other bodily horrors that are only just beginning to manifest in the hordes of people who now have jab-tainted blood and a jab-damaged immune system.

“The death rate for those who were vaccinated is the highest percentage of any vaccine in history,” noted a Breitbart commenter about how exceptionally deadly these experimental jabs truly are.

“All-cause mortality, increasing infertility, and exploding cancer rates are occurring all over the place,” noted another. “It’s a slow-acting poison that will do its magic over the coming months and years.”

Another pointed out that to call these things “vaccines” is misinformation as well. They are an experimental gene-editing “therapy,” the long-term effects of which are sure to be horrific.

“A large percentage of those who were vaccinated refused boosters and will not succumb again,” suggested someone else. “The CDC and FDA threw away their reputation FOREVER.”

As the midterms draw nearer, expect even more insanity from this criminal regime and its followers. To keep up with the latest news, visit Corruption.news.

Top 15 products and services HIT THE WORST by inflation year over year, February 2021 to February 2022

Image: Top 15 products and services HIT THE WORST by inflation year over year, February 2021 to February 2022

(Natural News) The Biden Administration is in desperation mode, trying to save face and win over some voters, with the chum-like bait of student loan relief, before the midterms come in just a few months, but it’s not going to work. Most voters hinge their prime reasons for choosing politicians on the state of the economy, and the US economy is in shambles right now, and it’s only getting worse by the day. Inflation is a creeping monster that gobbles up hard-working-folk’s money faster than the Feds can print the stuff, and consumers are feeling the pain on every front.

Information and statistics have been gathered for analysis from a March 2022 release of data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics Consumer Price Index (CPI) of the previous fiscal year. Consumer products and services were then calculated and ranked to determine those most affected by inflation.

This is all happening despite the US central bank keeping rates near zero the past few years to boost economic growth, but to no avail. As Resident Biden’s corrupt administration chokes out the supply chain on purpose, trying to install communism via socialism in America, everything has been disrupted, from manufacturing to agriculture, and from importation to the transportation of goods.

Nobody has been immune to this disastrous economy, and those hit hardest may never recover. It looks like the scamdemic-inflicted tsunami of economic destruction is here to stay, at least until the control shifts back to non-Rino Republicans in Washington DC.

Recent inflation period sees the fastest price increases since the early 1980s recession

If you’re not a “millennial” then you most likely remember the recession in the early 1980s. Times were tough, but nothing compared to right now and what’s about to come. The US economy is in a downward spiral, and thanks to Soros and the Globalists, everything that is a source needed to function and recover is being choked out.

Brighteon.TV

Manufacturing facilities are inexplicably blowing up or catching on fire and burning down. Fertilizer plants are shutting down and trains are being intercepted that deliver fertilizer for big farms to function moving forward. The Chinese are exporting less than half of their usual tech equipment and parts for computers, vehicles and accessories, driving the cost of goods higher and higher.

The cost of vehicle fuel is skyrocketing, driving transportation and delivery costs through the roof. Anyone who commutes to work or ships goods for their business is feeling the punches. Everybody who delivers food or rents a vehicle on vacations feels the drain on their wallets and purses.

Every major category of the Consumer Price Index is jacked up over the Fed’s 2% inflation “target” this past year

The greatest household expenses are shelter, transportation and food. Food alone is at an overall 8% increase, while specific foods rapidly surpassed that threshold, and some products and services have tripled or quadrupled in price, just since Resident Biden took office.

When Americans grew tired of the highly unnecessary “stay-at-home” orders of the scamdemic, they were quick to rush out and be entertained, by dining out, going to the movies, bowling alleys, comedy clubs, hair salons, massage parlors, therapist visits and national parks, only to find out the cost of everything had skyrocketed.

One thing all Americans can be sure of, and that’s the Biden Inflation Reduction Act is a huge scam, and won’t help anything or anyone at all, except the ever-expanding IRS get heavily armed for door-to-door collections.

Here are the top 15 products and services, in order from worst first, that have been hit by the Biden inflation machine

#1. Eggs +43%

#2. Used cars and trucks +41%

#3. Motor fuel +38%

#4. Fuel oil and other fuels +33%

#5. Lodging away from home +25%

#6. Car and truck rental +24%

#7. Utility (piped) gas service +24%

#8. Beef and veal +16%

#9. Motor vehicle parts and equipment +14%

#10. Pork +14%

#11. Poultry +12.5%

#12. New vehicles +12%

#13. Fresh fruits +10.5%

#14. Coffee +10.5%

#15. Fish and seafood +10.5%

Think surgical mutilations are a WOKE thing? The gruesome practice has been carried out for DECADES by cancer surgeons who cut off women's breasts in the name of “medicine”

Image: Think surgical mutilations are a WOKE thing? The gruesome practice has been carried out for DECADES by cancer surgeons who cut off women’s breasts in the name of “medicine”

(Natural News) The past few years, the “woke” in America want children and teens to be so confused about sex and gender identification that they think they want to switch genders, and then they get convinced surgery will do the “trick.” How do they get convinced of this? Simple answer: social media. It’s a gruesome and perverted con for adults to coerce children and teens to get surgery and take hormone pills that could mutilate, warp, and ruin their ability to use the bathroom properly, total loss of libido, and possible total loss of reproduction capability. Not to mention that regret can lead to severe depression, thoughts of suicide, and suicide. Social media is conning kids into surgical mutilations as a ‘woke’ thing, and the pharma shills love all the money, just like with the cancer industrial complex in America.

Surgery is big business for pharma, and they don’t care if they’re cutting off breasts for gender ‘changes’ or unnecessarily for breast cancer ‘treatment’

Decades ago, American mainstream ‘medicine’ began the practice of cutting off women’s breasts in order to ‘save them’ from cancer. Then they radiate the areas and often prescribe chemotherapy. It’s called cut and burn, it’s invasive, and it has horrible statistics for survival, especially for longer than 5 years.

Organic food and natural medicine are far more effective at preventing cancer and even healing from it once it develops, but there’s not much money in pushing those, so it’s never advertised or recommended by medical doctors or oncologists. After all, the FDA and CDC are very profitable businesses, and the business model relies on cut and burn, cut and burn.

Brighteon.TV

Child ‘gender-altering’ mutilations have something major in common with most cancer surgeries, and even chemotherapy is a kind of chemical mutilation

Now, thanks to trans-everything on social media, ‘woke’ Disney and liberal-run schools across the country, kids and teens can’t seem to figure out each day what gender they are or ‘want’ to be, while the ‘groomers’ (adult perverts and pedos) coerce them with Drag Queen Story Hour and curriculum that tells them to hate anyone who’s not ‘gender fluid.’

Surgical mutilations are nothing new to pharma, there’s just a new arena where they put them to use, and it’s even more perverted than cutting off women’s breasts to stop a cell disorder that starts and ends (in death) with chemical consumption.

For over 75 years, Americans have been sucking down processed food, putting chemicals on their skin, getting toxic vaccines, and then wondering how they’ll ever fight cancer if (when) they get it.

The medical doctors and oncologists convince them that surgery is the way to go, and yes, most of them will “go” (to an early grave) believing surgery is the best way to ‘fight’ cancer. New cells just keep warping from chemical consumption, surgery can spread the cancer, and chemotherapy destroys the immune system while creating new cancers itself. It’s a lose-lose situation, but again, it’s all about the money.

Gruesome practice of surgical mutilations ’empower’ the doctors who think they’re ‘doing good’ for patients and their ‘health’

Most Americans believe their doctors always have the best ‘training’ and ‘education’ for shelling out advice on cancer, mental health and health safety. Yet, medical colleges in America have been warped and twisted for nearly a century, to crush the thought that natural remedies and clean eating can keep you healthy your entire life, with the best chances for preventing and fighting off disease and disorder. This includes for cancer, heart disease, diabetes, obesity and dementia.

Surgery is quite lucrative though, as is investing in cancer machinery and chemotherapy manufacturers. All the same, the kids and teens of today who are taking hormone pills and getting surgery to remove their penis or clitoris, or saw off their breasts, are being subjected to high-risk ‘outcomes’ that can easily ruin their physical and mental health, forever. And, hey, bonus! They’ll probably be future cancer patients on top of it!

The nuclear family parents need to rethink how their kids grow up, what influences their thinking and behavior, and how to live clean and balanced, appreciating what God gave them, their parents gave them, and what to give to their own (future) children.

This has been a public service announcement from Natural Health News. Tune into Gender.news for updates on how the trans-world is warping kids’ thinking, so yours won’t fall for it.

Masking no longer about SCIENCE: it's about “respecting” Blacks and Hispanics, somehow

Image: Masking no longer about SCIENCE: it’s about “respecting” Blacks and Hispanics, somehow

(Natural News) MSNBC ran a segment the other day featuring The New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay, who made the implication that not wearing a face mask is racist.

Even though official government policy has done away with masking, Gay believes that people should still wear one as a sign of respect towards blacks, Hispanics and Native Americans, whom she claims have a higher-than-average risk of testing positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19).

“I think it’s an important moment to recognize everybody is weary, but the impact has not been equal across the American population or the world,” Gay told one of the hosts who expressed that he is tired of wearing a mask.

“A virus does not a pandemic make. What makes this a pandemic is the fact that 1,000 Americans are still dying from this virus. It is not the flu. And also, many, many more, unfortunately, are coming down with symptoms of long covid, which has become endemic, and anybody is susceptible to.”

In Gay’s view, so-called “long covid” is a very serious problem – “much larger,” in fact, than anyone realizes. And not enough is being done to address it, she says. (Related: UC Berkeley is now requiring students who refuse flu shots to wear a mask indoors.)

“As long as that’s the case, as long as we actually don’t have the treatment and the medication to truly make this something that is closer to a cold – and we’re not there yet, which is what we’re not really, kind of, acknowledging. This is still a serious situation.”

.@MaraGay: “Masking remains an act of solidarity & respect for vulnerable people, that includes people w/ disabilities, w/ chronic conditions like asthma, as well as for hard-hit communities like native & black communities especially, Hispanic communities” pic.twitter.com/IwP4rYgl19

— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) September 8, 2022

So now covid is all about skin color?

If a person wants to take off the mask while on a plane, train, or on the subway, “that’s fine,” Gay added.

“But I think we just need to acknowledge that there are still people in communities for whom this is a [sic] every day fact of life that they have to think about.”

These communities, Gay went on to explain, are all non-white – because white people, in her view, are most protected against Chinese Germs.

“Masking remains an act of solidarity and respect for vulnerable people – that includes people with disabilities, with chronic conditions like asthma, as well as for hard-hit communities like native and black communities especially, Hispanic communities that have been hit especially hard by this virus,” Gay rambled.

Brighteon.TV

“So we need more urgency around treatment for long covid. We need more urgency around respect for vulnerable communities. And it just doesn’t cost me that much to put on a mask for someone else.”

In the background, nodding along and verbally agreeing with all this, was none other than Mika Brzezinski. She and the other hosts, all of whom have lighter skin, were seen in a tiled view at the end of the segment mostly agreeing with Gay’s sentiments.

“Masking is an act of solidarity for stupid people,” wrote a commenter in response to the video clip.

“Masks are the liberals’ MAGA hats,” pointed out another about how face coverings have become a political statement.

“Stay home if you’re vulnerable!” expressed another. “Let your fear cost YOU everything, not me! Wearing a mask is ignorant. And it costs me EVERYTHING to give in to their mask-fear delusions. No more!”

“The mental illness is strong on the left,” added another. “At least we can tell who they are in public.”

Dr. Simone Gold RELEASED from prison following bogus prosecution

Image: Dr. Simone Gold RELEASED from prison following bogus prosecution

(Natural News) We are happy to report that Dr. Simone Gold of America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS) has been released from prison following a lengthy bout of persecution over her speaking appearance at the Jan. 6, 2021, Capital “insurrection.”

Video footage – see below – shows Simone walking out of a facility waving her arms in celebration and flashing a “heart” sign at a camera across the parking lot while shouting, “I’m back!”

Dr. Simone Gold has been released and has a message for you!#FreedomIsGOLD pic.twitter.com/Ft8Jf8qQsa

— Dr. Simone Gold (@drsimonegold) September 9, 2022

This heartwarming display was tweeted alongside a message from Dr. Gold’s Twitter page urging her supporters to send a welcome message along with a special hashtag celebrating her release.

“Show your support by sharing your welcome back messages to her as a reply to this tweet with the hashtag #FreedomIsGOLD,” the tweet reads.

Trump’s signing of First Step Act in 2018 allowed for Dr. Gold’s early release

Dr. Gold’s early release, we are told, is a result of the First Step Act of 2018, which was signed into law by former President Donald Trump. The legislation is, as described by the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP):

“… a bi-partisan effort to improve criminal justice outcomes, as well as to reduce the size of the federal prison population while also creating mechanisms to maintain public safety.”

Using a risk and needs assessment system, the First Step Act of 2018 allowed for Dr. Gold to be deemed a non-threat to the public in comparison with, say, a mass murderer.

Brighteon.TV

“Under the act, the system provides guidance on the type, amount, and intensity of recidivism reduction programming and productive activities to which each prisoner is assigned, including information on which programs prisoners should participate in based on their criminogenic needs,” the BOP says.

“The system also provides guidance on how to group, to the extent practicable, prisoners with similar risk levels together in recidivism reduction programming and housing assignments.”

“The First Step Act also expands the Second Chance Act. Per the FSA, BOP developed guidance for wardens of prisons and community-based facilities to enter into recidivism-reducing partnerships with nonprofits and other private organizations, including faith-based and community-based organizations to deliver recidivism reduction programming.”

In case you missed it, Dr. Gold appeared on the steps of the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, to talk about how the plandemic was being bungled. Americans were not allowed access to hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) or ivermectin at the height of the plandemic, and Dr. Gold spoke out about it.

She also spoke out against Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines,” warning about their dangers and urging people to seek out safe and effective alternatives like the aforementioned medications.

Speaking out about all this while Trump supporters were “rioting” by entering through the velvet ropes at the Capitol building instantly made Dr. Gold a target. She was later arrested and tried for her “crimes,” only to now be released with a smile on her face.

“A true American hero!” wrote one commenter about Dr. Gold’s labor of love in educating the world. “We’ll never know how many lives were saved by her having the courage to speak out so early!”

“You helped me survive covid last week,” wrote another who took Dr. Gold’s advice to heart and successfully overcame his illness. “I am so grateful.”

Another wrote that now is the time for Dr. Gold to sue those who went after her, seeing as how there was no “insurrection” and she certainly was not part of one.

“She is a brilliant and courageous woman who has both MD and JD degrees,” another commenter piped in. “Her First Amendment Rights were violated by an unreasonable prosecution.”
